Irresistible Me Ruby Auto-Rotating Curling Iron #review
A couple years ago I started experiencing issues with my right shoulder and curling my hair became a huge pain. So on those bad days, I just didn’t bother curling my hair. I have naturally wave hair so a couple pumps of curling cream and lot of scrunching and I am ready. But to look more polished, I like to curl my hair for a more uniform stylish look. Because of the shoulder issue, I need a curling iron with a clamp. Lifting my arms up to wrap my hair around wands is a struggle for me. It takes me forever and my arms kill me afterwards. Having an auto rotating curing iron makes curling my hair even easier now.
A few weeks ago I was given the opportunity to try out the Irresistible Me Ruby-Auto Rotating Curling Iron. When this professional curling wand arrived, I was super impressed with the lux and sturdy packaging it came in. It even has a little magnetic close on it. I don’t even want to toss it. The top flap has all the cool features this professional curling wand has displayed on it.

The iron itself is sleek and long but it is lightweight and surprisingly evenly balanced. The 360 degree cord makes it easy to place nicely on any counter. No more having the cord drag my iron off the counter for me! The cord is just over 8’ long. Most irons have a standard 6’ cord. I didn’t think that extra 2 feet would make a huge difference but it sure makes moving around with the iron a lot easier.
The barrel is ceramic, fused with tourmaline to easily create silky, smooth curls. The diamond coating enhances its durability and heat transfer. The tourmaline gemstone is a natural source of negative ions and far-infrared heat, which provides faster styling. Negative ions eliminate frizz and lock in moisture by closing the cuticle to create smooth, shiny hair.
The Ruby Auto-Rotating Curling Iron comes with an assortment of features that will make curling your hair so much easier:
- Ceramic and tourmaline technology with negative ions leaves your hair smooth and shiny by sealing hair oils, color and moisture in – means no frizzy hair
- Diamond coating enhances its durability and heat transfer
- Fast heating (less than a minute) with temperature controls between 260F to 410F
- LED screen that indicates the selected temperature
- Auto standby feature after 1 hour
- 1 year limited warranty
- Rotating auto recovery
- Ergonomic design
- Light Weight
- 360 degree cord
- 2.5m cord
- Universal voltage
Once plugged in the infrared temperature light will start blinking but you still have to turn on the heat by pressing the power button for 2 seconds. The iron will start by default at 260 F. To increase and decrease the heat, press the + and – buttons (above the power button). I like setting it at 380F. It has rapid heating so the iron gets hot within a minute. When the LED light stops blinking then you know the iron is heated to the desired temperature.
The time you keep the hair around the iron will determine how tight the curls will be - less than 5 seconds = loose curls more than 10 seconds = tight curls.
In the picture below, I left the iron on for at least 15 seconds so I ended up looking like Lil’ BoPeep. But I just pulled on the curls after letting them rest for a couple minutes. The curls loosened up nicely and after a tousle at the roots I got looser curls. Now I am lucky and my hair holds a curl for the whole day so I don’t need a lot of products to assist that but I do have super dry ends so I do need some styling and conditioning oils. Always a balance, right?
The auto-rotating feature is something else! I love it! Pressing the right or left button will direct the curl. I take 1.5 inch sections of hair and clamp it about 1 inch from the bottom and let the wand do the rest. There is a teensy learning curve with this iron but after a few minutes it becomes easy, kind of fun actually. Bzzz bzzz bzzz. I played with the Ruby Auto-Rotating Curling Iron for 10-15 minutes before I used it to learn all the features. The coolest feature I think is the Reset button. Press the red Reset button to have the handle clip return to the front position and you are ready to go in for another curl or you can place the iron on the counter. God I love technology sometimes!
The handle is ergonomically designed. As I mentioned before the iron is well balanced, not bottom heavy at all. The buttons are placed so well that you don’t accidently touch them when curling your hair. A common problem with my old iron; I would always turn the temperature down or up with my palm. The base has a little bump on the bottom so that when you set it down, the little stand in the middle and the ’bump’ at the base make the curling iron stand perfectly horizontal to the counter. I haven’t even used my heat mat since getting this iron. The cool touch tip means you don’t have to wear gloves! But I found I didn’t even really use the cool touch tip because the Ruby Auto-Rotating Curling Iron did all the work for me.
I also tested the auto standby feature to see if it would shut off after an hour and it does. I was wondering why an hour but since it is a professional curling wand, I imagine it would be frustrating having it shut off every 20 minutes. I always have weird paranoia attacks sometimes when I leave the house; did I shut the curling iron off? OH Geez! and I will turn around and drive back just to check! Seriously. I am such a weirdo sometimes. So auto shutoff is for me!
I am loving my experience so far with the Ruby Auto-Rotating Curling Iron! I wish I would have had this a couple years ago!
